where the increase in the minimum wage has stymied the economy, caused jobs to be lost, caused employers not to hire. where is the evidence of that? >> if that is the case, let's make it $20, $50. we not only have chronic unemployment of 8%, we have huge and terribly destructive teenage unemployment, minority unemployment. this is the entry-level jobs where you get started. if you are going to price it out of the market in an economy that has the weakest recovery since the second world war, you are guaranteeing you will create blight for these people. >> those other people who do the jobs that none of us want to do. i think the odds are that he will not get it and he will not fight for it that hard. the last person who fought for a minimum-wage increase was ted kennedy and he actually got it. >> who will be the time kennedy in the senate is an interesting question, too. >> if you cannot pay someone $9 an hour, you probably should not be a business. >> i agree with him -- >> you talk about the economy as if it is a moral and estimate. even if i agree with you, it does not change the fact

right. the cuts are not smart. they're not fair. they're going to hurt the economy. but what the president didn't mention, that the sequester, that was his idea in the first place. >> not smart, not fair. it was his idea? let's keep adding it up, boys. today john boehner fired off his latest shot in this blame game. he took to the pages of the "wall street journal" to accuse the president of the united states of creating a financial crisis. boehner said the president's sequester is now eminent. but the daily beast website released some information today to knock down boehner's accusations. you see, back in 2011, boehner's office developed a power point presentation for house republicans. it was a two-step approach, but it actually contained three steps. first of all, no tax hikes. of course that's typical. spending cuts extending the debt ceiling increase, and spending caps. but while pushing those spending caps, boehner did what? he highlighted a special trigger mechanism -- sequestration. boehner was selling this idea to his caucus as a good way to make sure that they were

that trend and take one oracle -- 1-2% of our economy every year to convert to green energy, we would be much further ahead. i'm so tired of the republican party to always be anti-green. we have an issue on this planet. i would like to see some things done in regard to that. green energy is important, and we should pursue it. thank you so much. guest: nobody is saying that it is not important. what they are seeing is that the federal government does not need the department of energy -- it does not need to be putting money into loan programs for companies like solyndra and fiskar. others -- they have gone bankrupt the. have gotten hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars for loan programs and all of those companies that got those loans with that taunt of money have gone bankrupt. something is wrong with the vetting process and something is wrong with technology that it is not working in the marketplace. i had solar panels on my house in tennessee as a test keys thursday as a test case 30 + years ago. they're looking to see if we could get enough heat units per day in solar panels. we never got

be with regard to the economy and not both sides being able to go back to constituencies and say truthfully here's where i stood and it happened nevertheless. it benefits the republicans because their mantra is one of we are not going along with spending cuts without tax increases and we can't have tax increases on top of the 600 billion we went along with. the president made a pitch to independence by saying the word compromise. i'm for doing this in a manner that compromises. i think it's going to happen a week from friday without a vote and that is also to the benefit of the members because they won't be held accountable for it. >> is this the new normal that we came to expect? >> yes. >> how washington works and is it how our founding fathers designed our system to work? isn't there a catch 22 here as we beat congress over this and isn't this the way we were designed to work? >> i can't go that far back in history, but in modern times and the time i have been paying attention which is three decades, i don't think the polarization has been anything like it is today. this entire situation is r
